Mac “Dr. John” Rebennack, a lifelong rambler, was the subject of a celebratory memorial ramble through the 7th Ward on Friday.

Only four days after New Orleanians took to the streets to honor culinary legend Leah Chase, who died June 1 at age 96, another throng gathered outside Kermit Ruffins’ Treme Mother-in-Law Lounge on a steamy Friday afternoon to salute a music icon.

Rebennack, 77, died early Thursday of a heart attack. He’d spent the past 18 months living quietly on the north shore, battling a number of ailments.
